We’ve been working and creating and playing with Joomla for several years. Our team has highly skilled & experienced geeks who share passion and desire for Joomla, of bringing better work to Joomla Community. Sometimes we honestly think we’re just children playing around with work & everything to us boils down to curiosity. Work smart. Play hard. Be curious. Try new things. These are the values we respect in anything we do. We’re interested in what’s good. You ain’t different, are you? We designers and developers should always keep the users in mind when we work.
